Abstract

Even the frugal Iowa State coed may well be astounded at the economy of attending school in Virginia in the seventeenth century. Unbelievable as it may sound, Peggy, whose accounts were so carefully preserved and printed in Godey's Lady's Book and Magazine in 1656, spent a year at a fashionable Richmond school for the complete sum of what would now equal about 18 dollars!
